Fr. Bob Fisher's Bio
On January 1, 2004, Father Robert (Bob) Fisher gave his first homily at All Souls. He was officially installed as Pastor on February 1, 2004.
Father Bob came to All Souls from a neighboring parish, Our Lady of Lourdes Parish and School in Denver. He has also served as Pastor of St. Anne's in Grand Lake with missions in Granby and Winter Park, and St. Mary's in Greeley. He was Assistant Pastor at St. Bernadette Parish and School in Lakewood, the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in downtown Denver, and St. Michael the Archangel Parish in Aurora. Father Bob's pastoral background also includes positions as Co-Director for Vocations in Denver, and simultaneously, Chaplain of Machebeuf High School and Mullen Home for the Aged.
Born and raised in Roundup, Montana, Father Bob left Big Sky Country to spend four years in the U.S. Navy serving in Florida, Washington, D.C., and Adak, Alaska. He also cooked professionally after graduating from the Culinary Institute of America in 1969. After that, Father Bob came to Denver to attend the College and Seminary at St. Thomas Seminary. He was ordained in 1980.
When asked to comment on some of his interests, Father Bob was quick to list his favorite things:
"Liturgy celebrated well; children on the playground; whole households growing in grace, wisdom and the love of God; HIV/AIDS ministry; cooking when I have time; an evening at home with friends.
Father Bob is eager to jump into the many activities of our community. While he looks forward to our scheduled capital projects, he hopes that: “as we expand our parish facilities we don't want to lose track of the fact that our souls are more important than bricks. We will all be catalysts that draw others to the Lord and the parish. We will inspire the children, honor the aged, and reverence one another.
